Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holiday of the year. Family, fun, and FOOD! What’s not to love about that?! I try to keep the flavors of Thanksgiving dinner last for as long as possible, but of unfortunately next day turkey can be little dry. The ordinary turkey sandwich is boring. So, my one of my Thanksgiving traditions is to take some of my favorite dishes from dinner and repurpose them into something even more mouthwatering. This year’s Post-Thanksgiving masterpiece is an Open-faced BBQ Turkey Fritter.
